Grand Ledge Middle School Swimming & Diving Team

The Grand Ledge Middle School Swimming & Diving Team is the perfect complement to our Mid Michigan Aquatics program each year. This team allows Grand Ledge students to swim and dive for their school and compete as Grand Ledge Middle School athletes. It also is a beginning opportunity for new swimmers and divers who want to experiment with this sport before high school. Both current swimmers/divers and new swimmers/divers are welcome and necessary to help Grand Ledge compete at the high school level in future years.

Members of this team will need to be enrolled in the 6th 7th and 8th grades in Grand Ledge Public Schools. The season begins the Monday before Thanksgiving and runs through January each year. Students will compete with area teams in dual meets and invitationals and learn about the sport.

The team calendar is located on the website along with the meet schedule for this year. Watch for any updates as the season progresses.

Informational Parent meeting November 11th, 6 pm in the GL High School pool balcony.​

Pre-Registration: $165 if signed up BEFORE Sunday, November 28th

Existing Fall MMA Swimmers: $165 will be charged to your account if you decide to participate on your team.  Coaches will take roster notes in practice and let us know that you are indeed participating on the middle school team AND Fall MMA.  You will then be able to sign up for  discounted Category rate for the Winter Session, which will offset the "cross over rates"
